Next from Sony Pictures, film about Prince William and Kate? Studio registers MarryingThePrince.com, others

Marrying the Prince

Is Sony Pictures Entertainment, which acquired the rights to Kathryn Bigelow’s film about killing Osama bin Laden, planning a film about the marriage of Prince William  and Kate Middleton?

The day before a press release went out announcing that William and Kate (who are traveling to LA in July) would visit a Veteran and Military Spouse Hiring Fair & Service Project at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, the film studio went on a domain name buying spree, registering five domain names centered around the phrase “Marrying the Prince”.

Here’s a look at the recent registrations.

Back in late May a number of news publications wrote about the movie “William & Kate: A Royal Love Story”, which is expected to be released in August 2011 on the Hallmark Channel.

But if these registrations are a sign of things to come, it looks like Sony Pictures may have something for Hollywood and the big screen.

Another good possibility,  is “Marrying the Prince” will be the title for the upcoming ‘Dark’ Little Mermaid film.
